Just got an email from EA Origin for a promo code. It is part of a "Trick or Treat" themed promotion. You could get 10%, 20%, 30%, or 100% free on your purchase. Just have to use your promo code before the 1st of November.

Looked for a thread on this sorry if this has already been posted feel free to delete this.

I think it only works on the games that are linked in the email.

I have a 20% off one if anyone is interested.

Hopefully there's more discounts other than just the four listed. Though I'd love it if I got a 100% discount code. Fill the cart to the brim and hope for a miracle. Big bucks, big bucks, no whammies.....and STOP!;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of unsure bets like this coupon. Thanks for posting this though, OP.

Haven't used it still deciding what to get, the exact wording of the email states:

All treats, no tricks.
Get a Surprise Discount at checkout.
10%, 20%, 30%, or 40%? A few lucky shoppers will even get 100% off! Use the promo code below to see how much you can save. (Valid through 11/1)

I wound up with a 40% off, so I'm going to have to see what's out there that's any good. One thing I did notice was that of course the list of games you can use it on doesn't include Battlefield 3, but who didn't see that coming?

Console games as well. Not a big list though. There are few decent games Dante's Inferno and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit to name a few.

I was about to purchase Skate 3 for $11.99 but shipping kills it for me, ended up being $18.99.

So pretty much $1 off and free shipping, not worth it

Has anyone actually received the 100% code? If anyone has a 50% off code and doesn't want it, send it my way! Trying to get Alice for as cheap as I possibly can. Thanks guys!
The chance of getting a Touchpad at my local BB is the chance of Texas legalizing gay marriage with Rick Perry as the governor. :applause:

Too lazy to check what % it is. Only game I would've been interested in was Battlefield 3.


it's a 30%
